Vice President Kamala Harris will participate in a roundtable on Thursday in Charlotte, North Carolina, to discuss gun violence prevention.
During the roundtable, Harris will highlight the Biden administration’s commitment to preventing gun violence, according to the White House.
The roundtable comes after a school shooting occurred in Perry, Iowa, last week. One sixth-grader, Ahmir Jolliff, was killed, and seven others, including the principal, were injured. It was the first high-profile mass shooting of 2024, of which there have been seven so far, per the Gun Violence Archive.
The roundtable is set to begin at 1:50 p.m.
